TRUE YASUI. .General Factotum
SEIJI HORIUCHIs election to
the Colorado State General Assem-
bly in predominantly Democratic
Adams County is a great personal
triumph for him. It is also a
victory for the Republican organ-
ization, which had the courage to
urge him to run.
HORIUCHI's performance in the
Legislature, which convenes in
Jan., will be watched with great
Interest by the more than 16,000
voters who cast their ballots for
him, by the State in general, and
by the Nisei and Issei in parti-
cular.
He ha6 the intelligence and
skills to make an outstanding le-
gislator. There is no reason why
he should not make good in this
post, and move on to more import-
ant political challenges.
Now that HORIUCHI has led the
way, it Is not unreasonable to
think about other Nisei entering
politics in Colorado.
ROY INOUYE of La Jara, in the
San Luis valley, a Farm Bureau
leader, has been approached to
run for the Legislature. He has
given the idea serious considera-
tion and it would not be surpris-
ing to see his hat in the ring in
a few years.
Another real possibility is
KISH OTSUKA of Sedgwick, in the
northeastern corner of the State.
Like Xnouye, OTSUKA is most high-
ly respected in his area, and has
been a leader in all manner of
solid, community causes.
Still another possibility is
MIN YASUI, who would scoff at the
idea, but is probably better qua-
lified for service in the Legis-
lature than half of those elected
to office.
All four of the Nisei named a-
bove are Republicans. There is
reason to believe the State Demo-
cratic party would be Interested
in backing a Nisei Democrat, if
they could find a suitable candi-
date. Anybody interested? ? ?
SECOND THOUGHTS ON 1962 ELECTIONS
AJAs came thru handsomely in Hawaii with the election of DANIEL K.
INOUYE as the first United States Senator of Japanese ancestry, and
the election of SPARK MATSUNAGA as U.S. Congressman to take Inouye's
place in the House of Represents- *
tives, in Washington, D.C.
SEIJI HORIUCHI
In Idaho, hard-working JACLers
rallied 2-to-l support to elimi-
nate an archaic citizenship law
which denied equal rights.
But, in the State of Washing-
tons -- we took a licking! -- We
so conclude, despite the narrow-
ing of the margin of defeat. As
AJAs, we lost; we just can't take
it for granted that our position
in America is forever secure, be-
cause of our past good records.
*****
(Editor's Note: As BILL H0S0KAWA
suggests in his column, we can't
think of a wilder idea than our
running for public office -- ex-
cept possibly for some such post
as dog-catcher. But, BILL'S
last suggestion that a Nisei of
Democratic affiliation who might
get party support brings to mind
several outstanding Nisei Demo-
crats, viz., BILL H0S0KAWA, and
LARRY TAJIRI, both of Jefferson
County, and TAK TERASAKI of Den-
ver. How about it? ? ?)
In Colorado, we are proud to
hail SEIJI HORIUCHI, Republican,
of Brighton, Colo., as the first
Nisei in the mainland U.S. to be
elected to a State Legislature.
Me expect HORIUCHI will do an
outstanding job for Adams County,
and for the State of Colorado!
Above is an artist's conception of "The Lumbini Garden Manor", a
beautifully-designed 10-story apartment building (by JOHN B. HIPP,
Architect) for the proposed senior citizens housing by The Tri-State
Buddhist Church, under the leadership of JAMES KANEMOTO of Longmont,
Colo., who spearheaded the proposed project under 1007. FHA financing.
Estimated construction costs are
$1,000,000, with 93 modern, up-
to-date units, at minimum, non-
profit rentals. It is hoped that
the building can be erected at W.
Colfax Ave. and Federal Blvd., in
Denver, Colo.

CREDITED OTHERWISE.
With the cooperation and help
of many hard-working JACLers, the
Mlle-Hl JACL's Oriental Dinner at
the Tri-State Bud-
dhist Church, Nov.
10th, went off well.
According to pre-
liminary reports by
TOSH ANDO (who acted
as ticket-taker) al-
most 1,100 sukiyaki
dinners were served.
According to DAVE
FURUKAWA, Treasurer,
sisted by KEN FUNAKOSHI, at the
door, a gross of about $1,500.00
was taken in at the door, and a
net of about $1,300.00 is antici-
pated from the dinner benefit.
The net 19 large, because some
400 lbs. of beef for the sukiyaki
was donated by FRANK G. MANN, of
M & G Feed Lots in Henderson. We
express sincere thanks to FRANK
G. MANN of Henderson, Colo.
We are also most appreciative
of the work of the kitchen crew,
including BEN KUMAGAI who super-
vised the cooking of 200 lbs. of
rice; BUDDY UCHIDA who brewed 50
gallons of tea; JOHN NOGUCHI and
MIN YASUI who prepared 1,100 por-
tions of sukiyaki; and to all of
the Brighton ladies and Denver
women who assisted in the prepa-
rations and serving of the food.
HENRY SUZUKI, assisted by MRS.
YASUKO FUJIMORI and others, and
the Bonsai Club under Pres. GEO.
Y. INAI, and Che Boy Scouts with
their Japan Jamboree exhibits,
contributed to the occasion.
HARRY G. MATOBA, spelled off
by YOSH ARA1, showed color films
of Japan for about 8 hours.
GLADYS TANIWAKI, assisted by
various ladies, staged Japanese
programs for the entertainment of
the large crowds who came.
GENE SIDE of Madam Butterfly's
Gift Shop set up a display, and
generously shared profits with
the Mile-Hi JACL.
Altogether, we believe that
the Mlle-Hl JACL Oriental Dinner
and Exhibits were a success, and
we cannot begin to thank everyone
